Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect or drain.
While a number of generic classes of geotextile are manufactured, by far the most popular geotextile is the needle punched style of product due to its versitility and overall performance.
Typical Bidim applications.
Drainage - sub soil drainage systems - used to remove water from road works, sports fields and behind retaining walls.The high porosity of the geotextile allows water flow while preventing fines migration.
Separation - construction of road and embankments over soft ground - ensures soft subgrade does not contaminate the fill material quality.
Protection - provides a cushioning layer for HDPE and GCL liners that may be subject to damage factors.
